We used to be proponents of changing the first set of oil at 500 miles but after doing a bunch of research, 2000-3000 on the initial oil is a better way to go because the initial fill has conditioners in there that you want to keep in there a little longer.
As for what oils to run? We have always liked the Amsoil for >7500 OCI coupled with the Amsoil filters. For a more cost effective alternative, we started running the Motul C3 X-Clean about 3 years ago and the Blackstone Labs results from the Motul have been as good as the Amsoil on 7500mi OCIs.
We stock the Amsoil and Motul and can drop ship the Motul if anyone needs it!
